Oh, baby! It’s Rays rookie dress up day

Today was rookie dress-up day for the Rays, a long-standing, and recently by rule toned down, tradition among teams to embarrass their first-timers.

Masterminded by veteran reliever Sergio Romo the Rays went with a fitting theme for the rookie-laden team, dressing more than a dozen players and staff in baby gear.

"We've been riding babies all year," said Romo, who wore his own outfit.

Wednesday was a wise choice for maximum embarrassment, given that they players will have to go through Customs at the Toronto airport and it will still be relatively early when they get to their hotel, or, as is sometimes the case, dropped off a block or two away.
